SS Pumps was started by Clifford Steyl and Sakkie Stoffberg in August 1987 as a Partnership. During 1993 the partnership was changed to a closed corporation and in 1999 to a Private Company. The need to align the BEE status of the company with the principles of Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment was given priority ever since it was first introduced by government. It therefore gives us great pleasure to welcome Mr. Quintin Joseph to our company as from October 2005 as a Director in Marketing/Sales.
SS Pumps is a well-known company on system design, pump design and manufacturing of pumps. Pump repairs, precision and general engineering are also covered on our activity list. During 2004 – 2005 we designed and built helical rotor scrolling machines to dimensions that cover any known rotor manufactured in the world today. We started a stator manufacturing plant that was commissioned in December 2005 – manufacturing stators for our pumps to cover any capacity from 20 liters per hour to 250 000 liters per hour and pressures to 15 bars.
We managed to design machines that produce rotors quicker and more accurately than anything our competitors can offer. We learned through experience over the years and are confident that we are the leaders in our field and can offer our customers excellent service and quality products. We look forward to an exciting future and plan to grow our market share on an ongoing basis.
SS Pumps is an accredited training center of MERSETA.
